New Leadership for Glad Tidings Kids Ministry! Thu, Jan 10th
In my prayerful search to hire a Kid’s Pastor, I became more convinced that what we need to accomplish our mission in Kid’s Ministry is competent leadership. Traditionally that leadership has come through a Kid’s Pastor. And although this has been a great model for us in the past, God is leading us think outside of the box and hire a Director for our Kids Ministry in the place of a Pastor.
We are very pleased to announce Miki Graff as our Director of Kids Ministry here at Glad Tidings! This decision came with clear direction from the Lord and confirmation from our leadership team. Over the last 5 months Miki has done an outstanding job of providing direction, leadership, and ministry excellence during her time as interim director. In just a short time, Miki has addressed several challenges with effective solutions. She made some great changes within our volunteer leadership structure and created more space for our growing nursery and preschool ministry. I am confident Miki will continue to lead our growing Kid’s Ministry to become the most fun and life changing experience for any child who walks through the doors of our church.
So now what? What kind of changes can you expect in the near future? Good ones! Miki brings with her years of Kid’s ministry experience and lots of vision. One of the immediate changes will be in Kid’s Church. Coach Jim Palenski has done an amazing job with Kid’s Church during the interim period and we are so grateful for his anointed leadership! Because of the responsibilities Coach Jim has at work, home, and church he will be phasing out of Kid’s Church in January and Miki will be stepping in to lead. Beyond Kid’s Church, more change will come as we add a third Sunday morning service near the end of March.
Finally, a huge THANK YOU to all the hundreds of volunteers that make Kid’s Ministry so fun and effective! Thank you for praying for Miki and serving so faithfully under her leadership. Thank you for leading all Kids from all backgrounds to real transformation in Christ.
I love you all,
